Nice change from fish and chips. Peanut soup, protein salad and South African specialties. Well worth the trip. Chef/owner has made this a destination spot.

If you're in the mood for something different on the menu, this is the place. Food is really good. Owner treats you like you're an invited guest into her home (and yes, she's South African). Tired of fried food? - this is the place! Do it!

Went in for a family dinner. (ages 3 yr - 85 yr) Had a good meal but the offering for children was very poor. French fries were very spicy for a 3 yr old. Service was fair. I offered my concerns to the hostess but she did not seem too receptive

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at our B&B. They serve African and Middle Eastern inspired food. We had the peanut soup (excellent), a lamb "taco" special, salad, and peri-peri wings. The food was delicious, and we both appreciated the careful preparation of all the different dishes. We'll definitely return on our next trip to the Cape.

I live nearby and frequent this restaurant! Definitely in my top 5 on Cape Cod. My personal favorites are the Farm Burger with the fries of course. The fries are SO unbelievably good. Another favorite is the Salmon cakes or the grilled salmon with a salad on the side. Monkey ribs and peri peri wings are a must appetizer too.... More

An established presence in Provincetown for the past few years, Karoo's proprietress opted for a larger space (which now includes an event space) in Eastham. The space is welcoming, attractive and the food is great and reasonably priced. The bartender serves up great cocktails and the kitchen staff delivers high quality plates with integrity to authentic South African standards!

Commuting to the Cape on a slushy miserable night we were just looking for a quick dinner before the final leg to Provicetown. Karro, set back from the road, proved to be a delightful suprise. The cuisine of Chef Sanette Groenwald, of Afrikaner Dutch heritage is thrilling. She had Cape Malay Stew served over tumeric rice with a side of... More

South Africa meets India in a magnificent fusion of cuisines. We were advised to stop here by friends on our way to Provincetown. We were delighted that we did as we would easily have driven by. With the warm welcome we received we knew we had made the right decision on a dark late November evening. Starting with the Combo... More
